National Centre for Early Music

Experience a unique tribute to the power of song.

Music Event

Three of the UK’s most creative, multi award-winning musicians create exquisite chamber music that weaves together the essence of folk and jazz. Drawing on their life’s work including original compositions, traditional folk songs and reclaimed standards, Quercus subtly colours each song to create a magical atmosphere.

Winner of the BBC Folk Awards Singer of the Year, June Tabor rose to fame in the mid ‘70’s, working with the likes of Maddy Prior and the Oyster Band.

Listed in the BBC’s 100 Jazz Legends, Iain Ballamy is one of the UK’s most widely celebrated jazz musicians and composers and pianist Huw Warren’s enticing music has led to collaborations with Maria Pia de Vito, Mark Feldman and Erik Truffaz. Together they create poignant music that forges June’s passionate voice with Iain’s mellifluous
melodies and Huw’s off-kilter musicality, to tell of life’s bitter sweet tales.

“ ...clarity, stillness and deep but fragile sound. [Tabor’s voice] is a unique tribute to the power of song.” The Guardian
